Kids At First
Kids At First seeks to echo the truth of the Gospel parents teach at home. Our audacious goal is to partner with parents in a way that enables kids to become mature Christ followers who make an impact in God’s kingdom.
Deuteronomy 6 clearly outlines how the family of faith works with families to help kids to know, love and serve Jesus. The Kids At First Ministry seeks to give parents simple tools to help their child develop spiritually. Parenting classes, Faith At Home printed and digital resources, monthly FX (Family Experiences) equip parents to spiritually lead their child.
Sunday morning Bible Study is the most important hour of our ministry. In the context of relationship with our amazing leadership team, kids build a foundation of faith using Bible-based, age appropriate curriculum. Additionally our ministry offers three weekly discipleship programs--WIRED252, EPIC, and Bible Drill. Vacation Bible School, Mini Camp and Kids At First Camp are offered each summer. Finally, we help kids and families mark and celebrate spiritual milestones like Getting Ready for Big Church, First Grade Bible Presentation, New Christians Classes, Kids At First Worship, and 5th Grade Retreat.
Our Children’s Minister, Julie Hammer, is available to counsel kids who are considering trusting Christ. In addition, Julie counsels with kids who have lost a loved one or who are struggling emotionally. Our ministry provides referrals for on-going counseling for kids and families.
